About

Dr. Anisfeld has two primary areas of interest:  coastal ecosystems and water management.  The former is reflected in his field research, which focuses on the impact of sea-level rise and other stressors on salt marshes; he is particularly interested in how sea-level rise and coastal storms drive the migration of marshes into adjoining uplands, such as woodlands or lawns, and how managers can facilitate and plan for future marsh migration.  Anisfeld’s interest in water management is expressed in his teaching and writing, including his forthcoming book Water Management: Finding Just and Sustainable Solutions (Island Press, 2021).  Besides his water management courses, Anisfeld also teaches courses in coastal ecology and environmental chemistry, as well as an introductory course in physical sciences for environmental managers.
